Refresh, rejuvenate, revive

Christian Jay B. Quilo

AMID the chaos of modern life, the occasional R&R (rest and recreation) is not only important but also essential for one’s physical and mental health.

Whether it’s hustling at work or hitting the books, it’s imperative to hit the reset button every once in a while; Revive Skin and Wellness Spa will do just that.

Opened last month, Revive is an offshoot of DMV Dermatology Clinic, awarded Best Skin Clinic by SunStar Best of Cebu in 2018. While DMV caters to the clinical side of skin care, Revive is all about pampering and leisure. Standing as managing director—and the face of the brand—is DMV herself, Doctor Malinda Vasquez. Bringing the same core values of her skin clinic to this new business venture, Dr. Vasquez envisions Revive to be a wellness center that will address the myriad of skin concerns many Filipinos face.

The spa has a holistic approach to wellness, offering a comprehensive set of services that cover literally from the head to the toes—starting with scalp treatments down to pedicures. The spa is staffed with skilled hair and nail technicians, and masseuses to give clients the pampering they deserve.

Its signature services include the Fabulash Eyelash Extensions with Eye Collagen Treatment, Hand Smoothening Parrafin Treatment, Anti-Aging Facial, Intensive Body Contouring Wrap, and Hair Reconditioning with Moor Mud, among others.

The spa uses only the finest natural and organic products for its services, which means clients can be assured that they achieve the best versions of themselves in the safest way possible. After all, Revive is more than just for pampering and relaxation, it also advocates for natural healing and rejuvenation—to look good and feel even better, naturally.

“For me, great healthy skin is a reflection of total wellness. Thus, it is important for us to relax, refresh and rejuvenate to reach a holistic state of wellness. That is what Revive is all about,” said Dr. Vasquez.

With the hectic schedules of most people these days, it’s crucial that they get a head-to-toe pampering session all in one place right in the city. Luckily, there’s a new spa in town where they can do just that.

Revive Skin and Wellness Spa is located on the Ground Floor of The Greenery, Pope John Paul II Ave., Mabolo, Cebu City. Operating hours are from 10:30 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday to Saturday.
